    I have been working at Experian full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Friendly coworkers, Subsidized snacks (and they buy lunch/dinner for employees very often), a lot of company fun events, Great work life balance - but will get sacrificed during crunch time, Pay and Benefits are good, This company (at least in the consumer division) is undergoing MAJOR technological changes. A lot of the old upper management and employees basically have to get with the times or get booted/forced out. Either learn the new technologies / agile methods - or get axed. Even though it is sad to lose people, thats just how tech works unfortunately. A lot of useless Directors / VP / upper management who werent doing anything and didnt have a clue what was going on most of the time got axed. Good time for a young blood to get in and learn a LOT

    Cons

    Office Drama... a lot of it. Like i said, its in a transition phase so there is a lot of distrust and backstabbing going on. Resources being shifted around daily so disorganization is high, people pointing fingers, worried about getting axed, job security confidence is extremely low. Depending on what department you work for, expect long hours occassionally

    Advice to Management

    Please don't axe any of the hard workers who are willing to learn. Axe the lazy ones who aren't willing to change

    I worked at Experian full-time

    Pros

    The company has a strong brand and global footprint with strong relationships with F500s.

    Cons

    They don't weed out bad managers. Also some divisions operate autonomously which limits their value proposition.

    Advice to Management

    Keep working toward broad solutions for top customers and do what is necesary to retain great account managers.
